Doesn’t that Marcus Jordan layup look familiar? It might be because his father, The G.O.A.T., made the switch right-hand-to-left-hand in mid-air layup famous on a early summer evening during the 1991 NBA Finals against the Los Angeles Lakers. Don’t look now, but the UCF Knights are now 6-0 after upsetting the No. 16 Florida Gators 57-54 behind’s MJ’s (Marcus, not Michael) 18 points, three rebounds and three assists. Compare this move to Mike’s after the jump.
WOW! You know it’s a big dunk when Shane Battier‘s own teammates are jumping off the bench. I think you can even see him crack a smile at the end. Is this the season’s Dunk of the Year so far? We’re sure Russell Westbrook has plenty more where this came from.
As we continue with our dunking lists, here are the top 10 dunks from this year’s preseason (according to the NBA). Although Blake Griffin gets love for two of his preseason dunks on this list, I’m shocked that this one got left off. For those of you at work, here’s the complete list: Read More »
We mentioned this sick alley-oop in this morning’s Smack, but this is just one highlight that you need to see on video. If Blake Griffin‘s knee is fully healed, then this should be the first of many highlights this season.
Yesterday we took you through the transformation of NBA uniforms throughout history, and now we’re sharing this visual transformation of LeBron‘s signature kicks. Starting with the Nike Air Zoom Generation and ending with the Nike Air Max LeBron VIII, take a few minutes and check out this 30-second teaser from the folks over at Nike Basketball.
During Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens‘ visit to Rucker Park yesterday, Ochocinco stayed on the sidelines and coached as planned, but T.O. switched the game plan up and laced up his kicks and got on the blacktop to compete. Compete T.O. did – as in the sequence below where he helped take Jadakiss‘ cookies and caught a decent two-hander in transition. Unfourtantely for him, he was also on the back end of a pretty sick reverse alley-oop going the other way right after. To be realistic, streetballer Antoine “Miles High” Millien didn’t literally dunk on him, but judging by the crowd’s reaction, it was like the Jets or Giants just won the Super Bowl.
